Japanese this, Japanese that. Not only are we getting alot of Korean news about SNSD like always, there has recently been a non-stop flow of news from the land of that good ol’ sun that rises. Just goes to show just how hyped up everybody is over Shoujo Jidai.
Japanese music magazine “SUKAPA-!” has caught on to the whole k-pop hype that’s brewing in Japan right now, and has done a feature on 3 female k-pop groups who are planning on heading over to Japan; 4minute, Kara and our very own SNSD. The August 2010 issue couldn’t have had a better cover picture. You know, you don’t see as much SNSD on the cover of magazines as you would expect though. SM doesn’t have them do as many photoshoots as they could.
The topic of SNSD has also been popping up in various shows on Japanese television. It looks like early next month Sky PerfecTV is planning to do a 15 minute special on the girls;
JP TV Sukkiri also did a feature on the girls recently. Unfortunately, it’s hard to find any Japanese shows on youtube on account of Japanese stations being even more copyright crazy than SBS or KBS but luckily there are some epic translators over on SSF who are more or less life-savers. The general gist of the feature went like this;
“Next on this special report on Kpop idols we will introduce SNDD who will have their breakthrough together with Kara.”
Editor from magazine FraU: ‘The Japanese idols nowadays want to reveal their original selves but Korean idols are hidden under a mysterious veil and have a group feeling.”
“Next a group, who gets a lot of attention amongst the girl idols: SNSD. 9 girls who combine beauty, beautiful voices and beautiful legs, will finally debut in Japan in September.
Cute and sexy SNSD’s songs and dances are coming our way.”
“SNSD’s charisma derives from the abilities of their leg dance. It’s called the beautiful leg dance. The legs that they use have the ability to captivate anyone that is watching, like magical legs.”
“Having 9 girls dance in perfect order is the highlight, moreover with the amount of people in the group makes it more exciting.
At the beginning, they may all look the same but after seeing them 2-3 more times you will get to know them. You will understand their detailed characteristics and like them even more, just like that wonderful cycle of love.
“They have already reached number one in Taiwan, Thailand, and the Phillippines, but it’s no doubt that they will breakthrough in Japan too”
Japanese S♡NEs are also currently working hard to learn the fanchants for SNSD’s songs in time for the performance at ariake stadium. It seems they are watching past SNSD performances to do so. Aww, you gotta find them Jap fans a little cute. XD There seem to be alot more female fans of SNSD rather than male fans too.

Speaking of Japanese fans, yet another Japanese artist has admitted to being an SNSD fanatic. Said artist is Haruna Ono, the leader of a super popular Japanese rock girl group, “Scandal“. She admitted to being very interested in the group and even owns the season 2 star card collection.
In relation to SNSD in Japan, alot of people have mentioned that they look more like ‘models’ rather than ‘idols’ because of their OMFGSOPRETTY factor as well as their pretty legs, which is one of the reasons they seem to appeal more to females in Japan. They get referred to as ‘super-idols’ quite often too, due to the fact that they cover so many different areas of entertainment.
SPA, another magazine also compiled a list of what they expect to become ‘BIG’ in Japan soon, and if you’ll notice, SNSD is on it too. Yay~

These girls will have the Japanese music industry wrapped around their precious little fingers.
You mean legs? ^^
prepare for soshi domination. =D
I’m so proud of them!
I dont know about you, but I am down for a SCANDAL x SNSD collabo.
i so agree
scandal was the first (and sort of only) japanese music i liked
“At the beginning, they may all look the same but after seeing them 2-3 more times you will get to know them.” lol i remember thinking yoona, yuri, and seohyun were triplets
japanese translators better be busy these coming months!!
The girls will be BIG in Japan! Thanks for the article ^^
SCANDAL! OMFG awesome band! it’s really nice to have a member from a very talented musical band liking our girls! another notch on the already long belt
wow they really got to the top now, go snsd fighting! 😀
O.O!! Wow! I have no doubt now, our girls sure can make it ^^ SNSD/GG fighting!
anyone can tell me difference between model and idol???
Models have poise and presence and are beautiful with great figures. Idols are cute or attractive and entertaining. SNSD are considered idols in Korea but their looks are so different from Japanese idols that they look like models.
OMG SCANDAL leader inlove with SNSD?! GDI! I WANT SCANDAL-SNSD COLLAB!!
woah, very good news 4 us…^^
now japan`s debut more and more interesting
i cant wait till the debut date…
^^ cz i know SOSHI will success in japan
GO SOSHI GO
well, koreans on average are taller than japanese people
some japanese male idols are just as tall as SNSD…that i know cos i follow both jpop and kpop
i know that SNSD is going to have massive success in Japan, and this all thanks to their seniors BoA and DBSK (maybe Big Bang as well) who have paved a way so that kpop is more known in Japan.
To be honest, SNSD have better vocal talent than many Japanese female idol groups…for example AKB48 don’t seem to sing as good as them but are popular so SNSD can be popular because they sing, in my opinion, better
ahaha i also noticed that there seemed to be way more fan girls than fan boys in Japan!
and about the fan chants.. Hehehee how cute!!! well, if i ever had the privilege of going to a SNSD concert, i would SO memorize all the fan chants… ^_^
The girls are amazing!! Love them~
I’m so proud of the girls i’m sure they will do well!
